Girl’s Night/Day – Sunday Brunch

Bubbly on a Budget was created not only to help with fashion and DIY, but, to help keep all aspects of our life budgeted.  This includes girl’s night/day.  We all love getting together with friends; so, once a month we will present you with a fun get together idea.  We will give you a recipe for a drink and food and also present a fun activity.  This month we present Sunday Brunch.  We have included a recipe for strawberry shortcake muffins and strawberry mimosas along with the rules for a clothing swap.  These recipes and activities are tried and true as we have done them with some friends before presenting them.

Strawberry Short Cake Muffins:

You will need:

  • vanilla/almond muffins
  • diced strawberries
  • granulated sugar
  • powdered sugar
  • whipped cream
  • spoon


Vanilla/Almond Muffins

1 c. granulated sugar  1 egg  2 c. flour  2 tsp. baking powder  1/4 tsp. salt  1 c. milk  1/4 c. melted butter  1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract  1/2 tbsp. almond extract

Preheat oven to 375°.  Mix sugar and egg.  Add in flour, baking powder, and salt.  Then add milk, vanilla extract, almost extract, and melted butter.  Bake for about 20 minutes (mine took 17 minutes).


After cooling for about 15 minutes, cut the muffin in half.  Put the diced strawberries in a bowl with a spoonful of sugar and 2 spoonsful of water.  This will create thin, syrup for flavor.


Put a spoonful or two of the diced strawberries on the bottom half of the muffin and a big dollop of whipped cream.  Then put the top part of the muffin directly on top of the whipped cream.


Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of the muffin to finish it off.

Strawberry Mimosa:

You will need:

  • champagne
  • strawberry puree (crushed strawberries, sugar, and water)
  • glass
  • diced strawberry (optional for garnish)


Pour champagne and add strawberry puree.  Be careful when putting the puree in.  It may cause the champagne to overflow.  Garnish with slice strawberry.

Clothing Swap:

You will need:

  • clothing, shoes, accessories

First, you will need to decide what you want to exchange.  It can be only shoes or clothes or a mixture.  Then decide how many you want everyone to bring.  Remember, these will need to be clean and in good condition.  Choose a person to go first (youngest, oldest, first to show up, rock/paper/scissor, etc.).  Then go clockwise from there.  The first person gets to pick what piece they would like out of all the items.  You will continue until there are no clothes left or there is nothing you want left.  Make sure you try the clothes on before taking them.  And if there is an item that is highly sought after you could always do a runway off to see who rocks that item better.  Remember this is all in fun and can be adapted to fit your needs!  If there is anything left at the end, donate it to a local Goodwill store.
